The Outfit Du Jour series was started as a thread at the purse forum. After about a year of posting these outfits there, I thought it would be fun to catalog them here at my blog so that we can memorialize the good, the bad, and the not-so-great moments in this love affair I have with fashion, especially all things CHANEL! The first outfit here will always be the most recent one, and hopefully as I go on the road I’ll be able to blend the fashion into the travel.  You can also click on any thumbprint located at the end of this page to view the outfits as a gallery.

    wow!!! that’s all I can say. I’ve decided this year to change my fashion style…i’ve been a bag enthusiast but never shoes and clothes…you inspired me but i think i can just admire you because for one, you are so skinny and i’m not…all the pregnancy weight (3 times!!!) never seemed to have came off!!!
